Observed (1970-1999) climate variability in Central America using a high-resolution meteorological dataset with potential for climate change studies
Average temperature (Tavg) data from stations and station-based gridded datasets at 50 km resolution were used to provide a high-resolution (5 km grid) dataset for Central America from 1970 to 1999. The procedure used ...
CMIP5 climate change hydroclimatic projections for Central America
A review of a series of articles related to the use of General Circulation Models (GCMs) projections for characterizing future climate changes in Central America are presented. Previous work using Coupled Model Intercomparison ...
Connections between the Intertropical Convergence Zone and other climatic features in Central America
This work explores statistical connections between the displacements and strength of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) and the Caribbean Low Level Jet (CLLJ). Indicators of the position and of the strength of the ...

Observed Changes (1970-1999) in Extreme Hydroclimatic Events in Central America
Previous studies have shown that most of Central America has been experiencing warming trends during the last 30-50 years, while precipitation annual totals have not changed much. Warming alone can exacerbate the effects ...
